Zuhairah Scott Washington, Kahnoodle

Kahnoodle is a mobile app that makes it easier for busy couples to do more of the fun and thoughtful stuff they did when they first met. The app rewards couples with real world discounts on dates and vacations for succeeding.


As the product of a broken home, the founder and newlywed was intent on preparing her marriage with resources and tools that would allow them to build and sustain a strong, healthy relationship. The advice Washington found in self-help books and magazines seemed empty, so she ventured forth to create something with more girth.


With an MBA and JD from Harvard, this unassuming entrepreneur, investor, and seasoned business professional packs a powerhouse punch with over a decade of digital media, private equity, and business development experience in global markets including London, New York, and Dubai. She’s worked at Goldman Sachs, Booz Allen Hamilton, and MTV Networks. Most recently she acted as director of business development and reported directly to the CEO and COO of Europe’s largest local search and user-generated review website, Qype.
